Join us for Forensics @NIST, November 8-9, 2016, when you will have the opportunity to visit the NIST campus in Gaithersburg, Maryland, meet our scientists, and learn how they are using advanced methods in metrology, computer science, and statistics to strengthen forensic science.

If you are a forensic science practitioner, this event will be a great opportunity for you to speak with our scientists directly. Our work is geared toward helping practitioners in their day to day work of solving crimes, and we hope you will help us do that by participating in Q&A sessions and other opportunities for sharing your ideas and priorities.
